I almost didn't get this, because people wrote about it being predictable. I started with Card's writing when he published the first short story version of Ender's Game in the August 1977 issue of Analog Magazine, which I still have — somewhere. I got angry with him when he seemed to suddenly veer off to The Right (Yeah, I know about his religion…), but I couldn't stay gone long without a strong dose of his Humanism every few years. This book has plenty. That it was a ghost story seemed obvious from nearly the first, but everything else unwrapped itself in its own sweet time.
Though OSC's work mostly strikes me as kinda juvenile literature, guess I'm still a kid at heart, cause I still enjoy it. Maybe it has to do with the era you grew up in (I'm 64) and the course of your life (I was bedridden for a couple of years around 1960, expected to die). For me , no one can touch Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury, with H for Humanity, A for Analytical, and B for Bump in the Night. Don"t get me wrong, I Iike Card"s work very much. I see he integrates elements of the acknowledged Masters into his work. I see him as a sci-fi scholar and hope to read more of his works. This is a ghost story, and, as such, I saw it coming. The thread that runs through all OSC's work is evident. The pure of heart eventually triumphs over evil. I like the way he puts the story together, though. And he weaves an interesting web.
Either Orson Scott Card's "Homebody" isn't my cup of tea, or he just didn't do as good a job of writing it as he usually does. Oh, the writing is technically well done and the characters are pretty good. But, the plot is really lacking. Instead of doing things to move the plot along, the characters spend the vast majority of the book talking about things: what-ifs, maybe-sos, if-onlys, etc.. If you look at what actually HAPPENS in the book, it's surprisingly scant. Also, a lot of the writing is done solely to set up some emotional reaction. Yes, I know that Orson Scott Card normally writes at an emotional level. But, usually, there's a really good plot setting up the emotional reactions and not just some artificial, superficial, and extraneous situations. So, I'm not all that pleased with this book. Thus, I rate it at merely an OK 3 stars out of 5.
Love O S Card, have read many of his sci-fi stories and found them fascinating, so possibly had some expectations in that manner. This story is a good read, but, in my opinion, not quite the quality of some of his other works. All-in-all, I don't feel I wasted my time, enjoyed the story a lot.
I kept thinking of Stephen King. This feels like a typical King story. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I believe it makes it a bit awkward. Orson Scott Card shines when presenting his characters and letting you get under their skin. There is some of that here, but the awkwardness makes it farther between than in stories better suited, like the Gatefather series or Ender of course.
A good Card novel, as always. More Stephen King that most of his work, with some predictability in the end, but still a great read without comprising my morals just to read it. An increasingly difficult problem if you're a reader that doesn't like popularized trash.
I love Orson Scott Card and buy everything he writes, but this book seemed a bit forced and unnatural.
It reminds me of another effort, Treasure Box, where the supernatural takes over and shoves out real logic and easy story-telling.
It is well-written but fails to sing -- if you want good Orson Scott Card, stick with Ender or try Enchantment.
A thrilling novel of complex morality and characters so wonderfully developed I wanted to enjoy more of their lives after it ended. I have read most of Mr Cards novels and have enjoyed each and every one.
Thank you for sharing your unique talent with all of your readers.
